[0.97a] Aptly Simple Hullmods 2.0.0
« on: May 02, 2022, 08:11:31 AM »



Aptly Simple Hullmods 2.0.0



Requires:
Lazylib

Compatibility:
Incompatible with saves below 2.0.0
Not safe to remove from an ongoing campaign



Adds a few hullmods to the game, hullmods are obtained through exploration or bought from factions.
The hullmods are balanced based on my experience with vanilla and modded starsector playthroughs.
S-mod effects only give a slight increase in power or defense to keep it balance.

Congrats on release!
I'm not exactly an expert on balance, but that one:
Quote
Graviton Attunement Drive
Increases the fleet's maximum burn by 3 but increases the sensor profile and supplies used per month by a factor of 3.
Seems a bit too harsh with the downside - increasing upkeep by a factor of 3 will probably put a lotta people off using it. 30% would probably be more than enough (fact. 1.3).

I'm also not too sure on the hardflux one, as hardflux through shields usually is one of the most powerful effects - others will very likely weigh in on that :P

Congrats on release!
Thanks, I kept staring at the post button for a few minutes whether or not I should release or polish it a bit more before release. But went with it anyways cause I have that feeling the more I delay the more likely its never going to happen.

Seems a bit too harsh with the downside - increasing upkeep by a factor of 3 will probably put a lotta people off using it. 30% would probably be more than enough (fact. 1.3).
My balance for this was comparing it to bringing 3 tugs and found out that it slightly loses compared to bringing 3 tugs. The thing is I don't want to completely make the tug ox ship irrelevant with that mod. Also can only be installed in capital ships.

I'm also not too sure on the hardflux one, as hardflux through shields usually is one of the most powerful effects - others will very likely weigh in on that :P
I tested this a few times and was going back and fort whether to lower the shield strength bonus or make it so that the shield arc can go below 30 or increase the threshold to around 95% for the full bonus to take effect. I might look into it.

Congrats on making a thing and releasing it.

You can make perfectly serviceable hullmod icons very quickly by strategically cropping an in-game screenshot, boosting the contrast a bit, and, if you so desire, doing a little sloppy paintover for style, then downscaling to the final 32x32 size.

Will it look as nice as the miniature illustrations vanilla uses? Probably not.
Is it perfectly serviceable for now? Yeah.

Hello! Updated the mod today, just added spirtes for the game. They look ok to me, some of them atleast but I might update them in the near future.

Added an new Hullmod

Makeshift Missile Autoforge
When missile weapons run out of ammo a dedicated autoforge is activated for that missile weapon, it restores 10% of its ammo every 60 seconds. Only works for missiles that don't regenerate ammo already.

Added new sprites to all the previous hullmods with the exception of the new one.

Thank you. I did just that, also tried to make my own. They look ok to me but will update them at some point.

Re: [0.95.1a] Aptly Simple Hullmods 0.1.8 WIP
« Reply #6 on: May 09, 2022, 08:05:59 AM »

Hello! Updated the mod!

Added 4 new Hullmods

Enhanced Autoloaders
Augments the ammo transfer and accelerates ammo feeding of all ballisitc weapons, allowing for an increase in ammo regeneration, ammo capacity and fire rate by 100% but lowers the damage by 25%.

Energized Capacitors
Streams of energy is continually directed to all capacitors of all energy weapons, allowing for an increase in ammo regeneration, ammo capacity and fire rate by 100% but lowers the damage by 25%.

Subatomic Accelerator
Installs a device that accelerates the particles that makes up an atom, increasing the projectile speed of all energy weapons by 20%.

Extended Barrels
Extends the barrels of all ballistic weapons allowing expanding gas to travel and push the bullet further before leaving the barrel, increasing the projectile speed by 20%.

The 2 new mods that increase fire rate may look OP but certain sacrifices have to be made to fully utilize them, tested them significantly in vanilla so it should be balance.

Re: [0.95.1a][WIP] Aptly Simple Hullmods 0.4.0
« Reply #7 on: May 17, 2022, 01:58:52 AM »

Hello! Huge update for the mod!

Added mor Hullmods

Volatile Ammunition
Ammunition used by all ballistic weapons are replaced with radioactive ammunition, allowing for an increase in damage by 25% but lowers the fire rate by a factor of 0.75 while increasing the flux cost by a factor of 1.25.

Overloaded Capacitors
A surge of energy is directed to all energy weapons overcharging them, allowing for an increase in damage by 25% but lowers the fire rate by a factor of 0.75 while increasing the flux cost by a factor of 1.25.

Reactive Subsystems
Replaces subsystems with reactive machines, a basic type of AI that only reacts to its given scenario but cannot go past it. This increases the max combat readiness by 15% and increases the peak performance time by 60 but in return it increases the rate at which combat readiness degrades by 50%.

External Cargo Holds
Installs cargo containers or pods around the front and sides of the ship, allowing for an increase in cargo capacity by 250/500/750/1000 depending on hull size but reduces the flux dissipation, speed, and maneuverability by 20% while increasing the armor damage taken by 20%.

External Fuel Tanks
Installs fuel tanks or barrels around the front and sides of the ship, allowing for an increase in fuel capacity by 250/500/750/1000 depending on hull size but reduces the flux dissipation, speed, and maneuverability by 20% while increasing the explosive damage taken by 20%.

External Cryo Pods
Installs cryo pods around the front and sides of the ship, allowing for an increase in crew capacity by 250/500/750/1000 depending on hull size but reduces the flux dissipation, speed, and maneuverability by 20% while increasing crew casualties by 20% when hull damage is taken during combat.

Maximized Drive Field
Enhances the ship's drive field to its maximum capabilities, increasing the max burn level by 3 but increases the fuel used per lightyear by a factor of 2.

Overloaded Drive Field
Enhances the ship's drive field but pushes it beyond its capabilities, increasing the max burn level by 3 but increases the fuel used per lightyear by a factor of 2, increases the sensor profile by 100%, and decreases the sensor strength by 50%.

A bunch of new hullmods, simple enough to understand in what they do. The new cargo hullmods are used to turn your combat ships into a cargo type ships but has big downsides in doing so good for just not wanting to have any sort of civ ships in your fleet. Combat hullmods are simple enough to allow changes in build to a certain degree.

Re: [0.95.1a][WIP] Aptly Simple Hullmods 0.4.5
« Reply #8 on: May 22, 2022, 12:59:45 PM »

Quick update on the mod as I will be going out of my country added a few hullmods, hope you like them. Haven't tested them heavily so they might be a bit OP maybe not, not sure yet.

Targeting Transceiver
Increases non-missile weapons range by 10% if installed on frigates or destroyers, or increases weapons autoaim accuracy by 40% if installed on cruisers or capital ships. But effects are only active if a cruiser or capital ship is within 1000su and has a Targeting Core / Unit hullmod installed.

Fuel Ramscoop
Installs a ramscoop that gathers interstellar matter then converts it into fuel. This generates 1/1/2/2 units of fuel based on hull size every 3 days.

Marine Training Facility
Trains excess crew into marines, this converts 10/20/40/50 crew to marines based on hull size every month. Can train up to a maximum of 50/100/200/250 based on hull size per ship with this hullmod.

Beam Combiners
Installs partial reflectors that combine two or more wavelengths of light on all beam weapons. This increases the damage by 20% but increases the flux cost by 40% and decreases its turn rate by 20%.

Hull Conversion
Convert parts of the hull into dedicated armor, this increases the armor by 20% and increases the minimum armor value by 5% but significantly decreases the hull by a factor of 0.8 and increases the chance of the ship breaking by a factor of 2.

the logistics hullmod regarding fuel and marines may need some testing but they should work and already have checks so no need to worry about them converting all your crew to marine or produce too much fuel beyond your capacity things like that.

Hello, just wanted to drop by and thank you for the wonderful mod! Just a heads up, the download link is still giving out the 0.4.0 version, though the latest can be obtained by going through the author's main github link and download v0.4.5 there. Hoping this can be fixed.  :)

Also, if it's alright to share, I've made some hullmod icons for those that haven't got one yet:

I'll post the link if it's alright, along with the edited .csv to apply the changes. Thanks again for the hullmods!  ;D

It might just be my banana brain but i don't understand why you would ever spend OP to install a hullmod that doesn't give you any advantage.
for example the "Volatile Ammunition" gives more damage for lowered shot speed. That alone would still be worth some OP since its more bang for your buck but then ruining it with lowered flux efficiency thus making the whole "upgrade" just becoming an OP waste.
Could someone explain to me, in what scenario is that a good/great pickup.

The mod is extremely cheap 13 op cost for capitals granted its good for ships with mostly ballistic weapons. Certain weapons become extremely reliable without the flux cost increase making those weapons if not all ballistic weapons just better overall.

I wanted to make sure that if you want to use this mod certain sacrifices have to be made like less guns, guns that use less flux, etc. I have tested the hullmod significantly enough so that it doesn't become a hullmod you choose because its 100% better than anything else. Granted the op cost alone is good enough of a choice to use it but it comes with a sacrifice. Though the flux cost increase is definitely high so I might look into it again.
